The CUSP work programme is organised around five core themes: (M)eaning and moral framings of the good life; the role of the (A)rts and culture in delivering of prosperity; (P)olitical and organisational dimensions of sustainable prosperity; (S)ocial and psychological understandings of the good life; and (S)ystems analysis to explore narratives of sustainable prosperity.

The MAPSS themes are drawn together through three cross-cutting projects. The first is a unique cross-theme case study to develop An Economy That Works. The second is a collaboration on sustainable finance with a coalition of thought leaders including the Aldersgate Group. Finally, we are launching a new Sustainable Prosperity Dialogue: a public engagement process which reaches out to a wide, international participation from research, policy, business and civil society.
